Background Information:
Dierenpark Emmen (also known as Noorder Dierenpark) is a large zoo located in Emmen in the northern province of Drenthe in the Netherlands. Built in 1935 and completely renewed in 1970, it is considered to be one of the finest zoos in Europe and has won various prizes. Animals live in a carefully reconstructed natural habitat according to vegetation, climate and elevation. Because of lack of space, a new, second site was opened in 1998 just outside of Emmen. The two parts of the zoo are well connected with each other and one ticket is sufficient for both parts.

I’m mainly a landscape photographer and take my camera with me on every trip. Though I’m still a learner/amateur-photographer I won several challenges and sold many works at several sites to different people all over the world.
